There are a number of instances where you may wish to transfer your settings. For example,
- If you would like to replicate a chart for a second symbol
- If you are switching from the Insider Bars product to the OF-G Suite product on the TradingApp Store, or vice versa (Different products use different indicator names.)
- If you are switching from a TradingApp Store subscription to an ELD subscription (Here also, different indicator names are employed.)
Insider Bars (and all the OF-G products) have a lot of settings. Manually recreating your chart would be a long and tedious process. Fortunately, there is an easy way to transfer your settings automatically. Continue reading “Transferring Insider Bars Settings the Easy Way (Video)”

TradeStation’s TradingApp Store is a wonderful advance in trading technology, allowing traders to easily and securely use third-party trading tools. But every now and then, something goes wrong an installed product does not function properly. Among the causes are the following:

The following sections explain the reinstall processes for Version 9.5 and Version 10. Continue reading “How to Reinstall a TradingApp Store Product”

Volume Markers work like traditional Bull-Bear Markers, but instead of highlighting extreme bullish or extreme bearish price action, they highlight two tiers of high volume Auction Points.

Bull-Bear Markers allows you to only highlight Auction Points where volume is very skewed to bulls or to bears. This example highlights price points where 75% of volume is bullish (blue) or bearish (red).
